Registration approval emails are sent to the email in the profile of every user with the Admin permission "Can manage users".
However, your idea of creating an Admin account with that permission and using that account solely to approve new members and giving all those you with to approve access to that account's email is not a bad one.
I think I finally have this working. Also be sure to do the following:
<UCP><Board Preferences><Edit Notification Options> Check the "e-mail" box to enable User Registration Notification. Otherwise the Admin account that was created for registrations only will only get notifications once someone logs onto the account. In my case, this account will rarely be logged onto.
The reason I cannot use the standard registration that people have been mentioning (including CAPTCHA) is that the site has a Hall of Shame section and the sites that are in there are not happy about it. When they find that their site is there, they often have real people get through the standard security and even make a few posts before acting up and causing trouble. We really have to screen the new registrations and see if they are in the Stop Forum Spam or if they are on any blacklists. If we find that the user name, the IP address or e-mail address has been used elsewhere in a negative manner, then we will either contact the new registration via e-mail or outright deny registration depending on the offense. It can get tedious, which is why I need help with this.
